On my machine the mouse cursor is invisible (clicking, hover events, dragging, etc all work, but I cannot see the cursor) when the VM captures the mouse. This happens both when Mouse Integration is turned off, and when I attempt to assign a second mouse to the VM (in the Devices menu). Mouse integration works normally, but this prevents me from dedicating a mouse to the VM.
I am using an Intel i5 processor, and Linux Guest Additions are fully installed and working. 3D Acceleration is enabled. The problem is extremely finicky when Acceleration is disabled, and I have been able to get the mouse capture to work until I reboot the VM. I have never been able to get it to work with acceleration enabled, though it does depend slightly on the guest.
